Banking of skin

Abstract

While early excision of the burn wound certainly proceeds the establishment of widely available allograft skin banks, this form of burn treatment was greatly enhanced by the 1970s proliferation of skin banks. Prior to the establishment of skin banks, commonly in conjunction with burn centers, physicians relied on the random or chance availability of allograft skin to supplement limited autografts. However, as skin banks flourished, escher removal by early excision became not only desirable, but the standard of care.
